Remember Stacey McLean?!
She rose to fame as a member of S Club Juniors (later S Club 8) in the early 2000s, alongside bandmates including Frankie Bridge and Rochelle Humes.
The group went their separate ways back in 2005 – but now the 27-year-old is back! And it sounds like she’s ready to take on The Saturdays in the charts.
Speaking to OK! Online, Stacey reveals: ‘I left the band I was 15 or 16, just over 10 years ago now. And I’ve kind of been around, I’ve done bits and bobs, and some TV appearances and stuff, but I feel like now I’m kind of ready to break out into the industry again.

‘I’m working on a track at the moment which is going to be massive, so everything’s going according to plan. You’ll be hearing it soon, it’s amazing.’
But unfortunately for Stacey, not everything about her return to the limelight has been 100% positive.
She’s been forced to defend shocking – and completely bizarre – claims that she FAKED her mixed race background. Um, excuse us?!
Of course, Stacey does look a little different to how she did in her early teens. But we imagine that’s because she’s over a decade older… obvs.
She says: ‘A lot of people are like: “She’s not mixed race anymore,” and it’s like: “Erm… I am!” I’ve just grown, I mean I’m 27 now. It’s been 14 years since I was in the band.

‘People kind of think: “Okay, she’s not mixed race and she’s had a lot of work done and she isn’t natural.” I’m like: “No I’m just grown.” These are my features.’
Well, it’s safe to say this is the oddest thing we’ve heard today. But it’s good to have you back, lady!
